The Nomadic Artifact

Nomadism: a kind of critical consciousness that resists settling into
socially coded modes of thought and behaviour...it produces the subversion
of set conventions.

Writing in Our Time

Intertexuality: Conversations Between the Sheets
English Graduate Student Conference
The University of Tulsa
March 30-31, 2007

Call for papers and panels:

"Conversations Between the Sheets" is concerned with the direct and/or indirect discourse between texts that takes place when authors (whoever an author may be—from a single writer or coauthors to a community of editors, publishers, booksellers, etc.) interact with each other—alluding, referencing, paraphrasing, quoting, borrowing, sharing, stealing, extending, challenging, or opposing each others' ideas. Whether it is in the form of support, abuse, or simply recognition of ideas between writers, texts converse with each other.
